Problems reading Navi GPS GT31 into MacOS 10.10

Magnus Braide
Hi,
I have changed computer and the new one runs OS 10.10.
GPSBabel is now not able to read the device in NaviLink mode (no problems with older computer running OS 10.6 and older version of GPSBabel).
No difference if I connect the device after starting the program (this was not possible before) and the same error message if I don’t connect the device at all.
Seems like the software is unable to find the device.

The error message reads:
gpsbabel -t -i navilink -f /dev/cu.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port -x track,fix=none,course -o gpx -F /Users/MagnusB/Eget/Windsurfing/GPS/Untitled.gpx
NAVILINK: Read error

Error running gpsbabel: Process exited unsucessfully with code 1

Do you have any ideas about what is going on?
Greetings
Magnus

Hello 

Have your installed the latest GT31 USB Driver from LOCOSYS.

I think it is:   PL2303 Mac OS X driver v1.2.1r2, Prolific Edition

Here is the link:


Select the "GT-31 USB Driver for Mac

If you have any difficulties downloading, please let me know, and I will forward you a copy.

Thanks,
